The rest about 20,000 shelter-less Rohingyas plus Kaman and Rakhine muslims are languishing without food in Rathedaung, Kyauktaw, Pauktaw, Rambre townships.
The eventually permitted aid distribution in the five Rohingya refugee camps of Sittwe by Yangon based muslim organizations has estimated similar number.
A source received from Sittwe confirmed that the Rohingya leaders raised about the permission to distribute food for shelterless Rohingyas in other regions during in a meeting with Vice-President Sai Mauk Kham and Rohingya leaders in Sittwe on 4 Aug. Rohingya political prisoner Mv.Abdu Shukur, Imam Jabul Haque, current village secretary- Master Shwe Hla, Khobir, and other acting leaders were attended in the meeting.
The vice president did not said about normalization of the situation nor the restoration of Laws and Orders. Instead, he informed that the Rakhine community wanted to live separately from muslim people therefore he asked the remaining a few Rohingyas and Kamans in the town are whether willing to move to townside areas.
